The Wooly Mammoth's Bones

Sydney with her broken humerus poses with the Wully Mammoths humerus.

The La Brea Tar Pits

I thought of Andrea Braun several times as we walked through :) I am so glad she introduced me to this place. Everyone had a great time and I was once agin amazed.

It Was A Yellow Kind of Day

Fortunately this was only a clothes reference. Everything else is green, okay maybe a couple of red things...

My Sweet Girl

Yesterday Sydney fell during outside playtime at church. My poor girl was in pain and Michelle quickly got me over there. It was clear that we were going to urgent care and after a temporary splint today she got a cast. It's a little "tricky" and so she will have to get X-rays every week for the next month to ensure its healing properly and won't require surgery.

I feel bad that she will be starting Kindergarten with the cast and won't be able to write for a couple weeks and won't be able to play at recess for at least a month. Pray for quick healing please! I love you, Sydney!

I Love Timehop....On This Day

Serious Conversation At Starbucks

The woman behind me in line pointed them out to me and said dont they look cute? They sure do!

We Are On A Mission

Tonight I told the kids we were going on 5 missions and they were so excited. Mission #1 was revealed when we got to the dog park. Mission #2 another Pasadena park. Mission #3 the drive through car wash (they squealed and laughed through the whole thing and they made me wear goggles so i could still see when the water covered the car) Mission #4 the indoor playground McDonalds in La Canada. And the last mission (#5) was getting milkshakes at Connals.

Acronyms on the new Starbucks sacks is just a little too much for me......

What it means to me: Real Friends Practice Loyalty
What it means to Starbucks: Reduced Fat Pumpkin Loaf

Wonder Watson, I Think This Is For You

Which One Is Bad?

The first one expires on Feb 4th 2014 the second expires two weeks later on Feb 18th. The color is not even close to the same, both are Motts 4 Tots Apple Juice.

Offensive (Grace Should Have Let Me Have It)

I was redoing my pictures in the hallway last week and I realized that I had a picture up of one of Andrew's ex girlfriends! I think Grace (or Andrew) should have scolded me before now but rest assured she is now gone and one of my favorite pictures of Grace is on display.

Brooke Still Loves Her Pillow

Company is Coming (Twice this week)

So today I decided to throw (yes throw) everything out of the girls closet and reorganize. Remember that whole thing that if you acknowledge something than its ok? Like I know that a Venti iced Chai is 350 calories and I am going to order it or I know company is coming and my house is a mess. See it's all better.....

Overnight Trip to San Clemente

The luckiest kids in the world getting unexpected cousin time at the beach and then the San Mateo campground.

Back to Little June Bugs

Sydney has been here before with Liz but this was Brooke's first time at Little Junebugs. Fun activity and we also got two new kids books from Lisa Loeb (includes music cd that we are all enjoying).

Nova Scotia Lobster

People say Nova Scotia lobster is the best in the world....I believe it! These lobsters were huge, we ordered a few cans of soda, bottle of water, plate of clams, plate of scallops and 6 lobsters for $98~. The lobsters had come out of the bay 45 minutes before we ate them. We really had the best ever lobster experience.

The Lobsta Truck

Yesterday, Aaron, Doug, David and I went to the Lobsta truck up the street. A small lobster sandwhich, crab sandwich, cup of soup and bottle of water cost me about 1/2 of what I paid in Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia lobster post coming soon.
